Still Time for APOGEE!

Thanks to the cap increase for 2019 to $100 million, it appears there is still time to redirect a portion of your state taxes to scholarships for deserving students through APOGEE for the Georgia State Tax Credit Scholarship as the cap has not yet been met!

There’s no telling how long this may last, so don’t delay if interested. You can find more information HERE.

2019 Ride 2 Read Sponsorships & Tickets

Our 2nd Annual Ride 2 Read is an escorted ride scheduled for Saturday, March 23, 2019. Breakfast, catered by Henry’s Louisiana Grill, will begin at 9AM and the Ride will take off at 10AM.

Last year’s ride, our very first, generated almost $2,000 and helped our reading programs and enabled us to sponsor International Dyslexia Association events in Georgia.

This year, we have our brand new Upper School building on the very site of where the picnic tables were last year! The support of all the riders was a great help in expanding our programs.

There will be live music again this year by David Arnold as well as other activities by sponsors.

For more information and to purchase tickets, click HERE.

We hope to see you on the 23rd!

#GivingTuesday 2018

Acworth, GA (November 15, 2018) – November 27, 2018 is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners – charities, families, businesses, and individuals—to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year, November 27, 2018, to kick off the holiday giving season and to inspire people to give. Millions of people around the world have participated in the movement.

This year, Facebook and PayPal will be matching up to $7 million of funds raised on Facebook for US nonprofits (this is $5 million more than last year). Whether you have $10, $100, or $1000 to give, it all adds up for us! Especially when being matched! This is also a great way to maximize an end of year tax deduction. In our first #GivingTuesday, last year, we raised $1,870… Our goal this year is $2,500.

In the spirit of giving, we will rekindle our #GivingTowelTuesday campaign to donate towels to Lake City & Acworth Animal Hospitals (one of our biggest supporters) to use for their Road Trip Home Animal Rescue support. On the last Tuesday of the month we will collect gently used towels and blankets to donate to help them help the rescue.

“After an overwhelming show of support from our community during our 2016/2017 fundraisers, we felt compelled to do something to thank our supporters.” Said Kim Wigington, Principal, “One of our biggest sponsors & supporters, a local veterinary service, is constantly needing towels for one of the charities they support, Road Trip Home Animal Rescue. We knew our families would support this and they did not disappoint. We collected over 175 towels and blankets, which is tremendous given the size of our school.”

About Brookwood Christian

Brookwood Christian School is a private, non-profit, non-denominational Christian school that serves students who have not been successful in public or private schools due to their unique learning needs: individual or multiple learning disorders such dyslexia, reading & language processing disorders, auditory processing disorders, attention deficit disorder, neurological disorders, and other specific learning disabilities. Most of our operating budget comes from tuition payments augmented by the Georgia SB-10 scholarship program. Eighty-six percent of our students receive some sort of financial assistance. Recognition such as this helps with our fundraising which helps keep our operating costs and tuition low.

About #GivingTuesday

Founded in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y – a community and cultural center in New York City − #GivingTuesday inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $300 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness. “It’s been a privilege to work with remarkable leaders all over the country building a movement around #GivingTuesday,” said Henry Timms, 92Y’s Executive Director and founder of #GivingTuesday. “This initiative has truly been crowd-sourced by some of the smartest and most connected minds among the next generation of philanthropists and entrepreneurs.”

It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
